polaroid love : group 3/3
Thanks for joining us on our trip down memory lane, although these photos were taken last week! Somehow, they do seem to represent many of our memories from the beach growing up. This is the last group and I really must thank Scott for being my driver, scout + photography assistant for this project as well as for his patience. He heard lots of this - slow down here, no there, STOP, hold this, hold that, one more! Oy vey!
In addition, the film isn't inexpensive or unlimited, so it takes more than 10 seconds to find a good shot - the first photo in the group of the flag took over 15 minutes in order to capture the flag waving in the wind "just right". Plus, the camera is not compact and you have to deal with the picture when it prints out - where do you put it? And, I was also using my digital camera for the same things - that seems crazy for a regular person! No?
I have less than 15 shots left and I'm wondering if I should get more film, or stick with my original plan of 40 pics and out? I'm a bashful photographer and using this camera makes me feel very self-conscious. I tried some interior shots and they are less than stellar. The beach really suited Polaroid. Oh dear, I'm a Libra and can never make a decision, quickly ....
